Can slides be provided in advance?
Wayne certainly can provide PowerPoint slides in advance of your event. Just keep in mind he does dozens of events each year and often just a week or two to focus on your presentation. This means he may make significant adjustments to the slide deck right up until the last minute. Though Wayne hates last minute adjustments, sometimes these changes make great improvements to the presentation. We will meet all deadlines but request the opportunity to submit updated versions closer to the event date.
Also, Wayne’s slides are highly visual and rarely have more than a few words on them. He speaks from his heart and mind. Reviewing the slides without Wayne’s actual narration will not really provide a true understanding of the message. Also, 60-minute presentations can easily have over a hundred slides. He creates an experience for his audiences, relying on the visual slides to add perspective and depth to his comments.
Remember, his PowerPoint files can easily be up to 30 MB. Email cannot handle files this large. Instead, Wayne will share the file on Google Drive, Dropbox, or by some other means so you can easily download the file directly to your computer.
Finally, if an event-specific template is required, we will do our best to accommodate the requirement. Remember that picture-based slides must remain clear of border branding unless the graphic can easily be added on top of the primary image. Use event templates for the opening and closing slides is relatively easy and we find that that this is often all that’s needed to maintain branding continuity for the event.
